All project managers require both hard skills and soft skills to manage projects successfully. The hard skills deal with the technical aspects of projects and project management, whereas the soft skills deal with the people who deliver the project end-results. A competent project manager should therefore be well equipped with a good balance of hard skills and soft skills. It is more likely to realize the value of hard skills with a good grasp of soft skills. Acquiring soft skills means acquiring the art of understanding and engaging effectively with people.  This 2-day interactive course is designed to provide a solid foundation in the art of project management, especially the key competencies of people skills in communication, leadership, emotional intelligence, motivation, influencing, problem solving, decision making, resolving conflict, negotiation, and political / cultural awareness through practical exercises, case studies and self-evaluation tests.
